Programs Outcomes

  • Students will utilize environmental field guides to interpret an ecosystems’ function and value (Field guides / protocols)

  • Students will quantify environmental parameters and analyze environmental data (Quantifications)

  • Students will assess how an action (or inaction) creates feedbacks within natural and human ecosystems (Feedbacks)

  • Students will evaluate the validity and applicability of experimental design and field methodology (Experimental Design)

  • Students will design and document a scientific methodology for the measurement of an environmental parameter (Scientific Communication)
